2d symbol rotated when making list of doors/windows

Anonymous
Not applicable
Door and windows lists are usually made with a front elevation (from the outside). But when I create a schedule/list with the 2d symbol, this symbol has the inside in the downward direction on the paper, which means that the front elevation and the symbol are not from the same direction. This is one of the reasons why automatic door schemes are still not usable.

I'd like to have a 2d (plan) symbol of doors and windows with the outside facing down on the paper so that I can put the front elevation above it instead of the back elevation.

Hi Simon,

I also want this badly. I'll try covering the automatic (wrong) orientation with a white solid fill upon which I draw the 2D symbol I want as shown in attach. Reasonably ok if you dont have too many doors/windows.

What if you just switch the door's "Line Orientation".
